Graduating from Officers School does not give you a license to ignore all authority except your own and lastly try to be a dang good Cop and do your sworn duty...respectively!
      …butt in our business the customer is not always (usually never) right.

          I am thinking I have worked more fatals than you and speed has never been the primary factor... The primary factor in almost all of my fatals has been alcohol...

          Who the hell pulls someone over for doing 6 over the limit?

This gentleman is to be commended for his heroic military service to his country. But he above all should recognize that we all have to obey the laws of the land. It gives us what you call civility and distinguishes us from other countries! I would only say, that the OFFICER used a poor choice of words, in that he was corrrect to say."It doesn't matter, sir, because you were speeding and its my duty to write you a ticket. The reason I'm citing you is because many beloved citizens die each year on our roads and h'ways becasue they risked not only their lives but someones else's life by speeding. Its a matter of TACT', should have learned this in the ACADEMY. Bedside manner or PR is very important in reflecting the duties of an OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN! Choosing the right words at the right time might not seem important to some officers, but remember YOU ARE REPRESENTING THE LAW!
            Margaret, I just cannot let this slide. In another forum when people where discussing the Florida deputy who pulled over the woman for speeding on her way to the hospital, you had this to say:
            I cannot believe the Fla deputy who did not respond appropriately to the speeding woman on the way to her father who was at the hospital after driving himself in with a diagnosed "heart attack!" What officer training school did he attend? The proper response would have been. "Follow me mam, I'll lead you in !" but of course he might have pulled up her record and saw something he was not comfortable with, however, sometimes we don't get THE REST OF THE STORY! It is the duty of a sworn officer to protect lives and use his expertise training for such situations as this? Not really sure what this deputy's problem was.

            I just simply don't understand which side you're on.

              If you're going to let someone go because they're a MOH recipient who went through the effort to get MOH plates to display and then makes sure you know about it when you pull them over, then you should probably let EVERY veteran you stop off with no ticket (especially on Memorial Day anyway).

              I know a couple guys who are recipients of MORE THAN ONE Silver Star apiece from WWII, and Distinguished Service Cross recipients, and they'd be the first to tell you that there are a lot more guys out there who SHOULD have gotten medals but didn't, either due to a lack of witnesses or politics, or any number of reasons. Officers routinely were awarded higher medals than enlisted men for the same leval of valor. So I think it's probably safe to say that there are a lot more living veterans who SHOULD have recieved the MOH but didn't, than there are living vets who hold Medals of Honor.

                OH SHEEP DIP, Just when I was on the way out for the day! Really sir,
                you just reminded me of those times that your officers training didn't kick in and hit you square in the head because there is no code to grab hold of off the officers manual. Well, that when common sense kicks in becasue you take all the training you've had and put it up front and just do what you have to do and just ...hope. ...just hope ..Its THE RIGHT THING TO DO! Have a lovley day

                  Why the medication reference. I am no detective, but thats fishy. Do crazy people talk about being crazy or are crazy people just crazy and dont really know it?

                    What in god's name are you talking about? First of all, it's ma'am, not sir. Second of all, I'm not an officer. I am simply a person who has been on this forum observing your posts and trying to figure out how, in one example, you completely bash a police officer for doing his job, and then here you are saying no one is above the law, the police officer did the right thing. It's like a split personality or something.
